Sallie Mae: Signature Student Loan
The Signature Student Loan is a privately insured, credit-based loan. As an International student either in F-1 or J-1, you may apply for a Signature Student loan if you:

  • Are enrolled at least half-time at a four-or five-year college or university; and
  • Are working on an undergraduate or graduate degree in general studies or a graduate medical degree; and
  • Have an eligible U.S. co-signer who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (green card holder).


Through our college information services, we help students and families with career decisions, select colleges, navigate the financial aid process, and find resources. In addition, we realize many people need help filling the financial aid gap. To help meet this need TERI offers loans based on good credit, with no income limitations, for elementary and secondary, undergraduate, graduate and continuing education studies.

  • Note that this loan is certified at Hunter College once you have applied.
  • Also note that you need a co-signer who is a permanent resident or a U.S citizen with a good credit rating.
